Which of the two types of coffee is it the best for health, helps prevent certain diseases?
We know that the Robusta is stronger in caffeine, but it is not necessarily less rich of other molecules and precisely, a study has been devoted to determining for each type of coffee the amount of certain key components which are been proved beneficial to longevity. It concludes that robusta is the best against diabetes, arabica against Alzheimer!
The question of choice could be no longer relevant in a few years if the climate continues to warm, as Arabica plants which require a temperate climate will not resist, while it will not affect the robusta. But even in this extreme case, it would be useful to know if the second has the same properties as the first.
These depend to a list of components:
Comparison of contents depending on the variety of coffee (roasted):
According to this study :
We must also add that green coffee contains twice phenol and also more trigonelline than roasted coffee. If you want to further increase the yield and you yourself grind the coffee, the better the product texture is fine - and thus the longer you grind - and the more caffeine and other components are obtained. The method of preparation has also its importance, espresso has more performance than any other way of preparing it.
Finally, you choose your coffee depending on your predispositions to contract such disease types, and knowing that the green coffee and espresso have the most positive impact on health.

What is the value of decaffeinated coffee?
Does it have the same effect on longevity as regular coffee?
How many coffee cups a day?
Each additional cup of coffee reduces by 7% the risk of diabetes! But it should be limited to three or four a day not to saturate the body.
